AMAZING terrace

  • 5 of 5

Maurizio, the owner, is one of the nicest people I have ever met. Since he lives upstairs, he's always around and helpful with any issues or recommendations of places to visit or eat. His whole family was very nice as well as I met his sons coming in and out of the gate.

I went with 3 friends and we stayed in the 1st floor apartment. There was enough space for all four of us in the apartment. We spent almost every night drinking bottle(S) of wine on the terrace admiring the view. It is the most amazing view I have ever seen. The water never ends.

Two bedrooms and bathrooms were helpful with 4 people. The cable car to go to the beach is across the street. The entrance to the city is up the street to the left. And the bus terminal is down the street on the right. It will get you to Catania airport (about an hour away) which is MUCH closer than Palermo. There's a great restaurant across the street near the arch. Best pistachio pesto I've ever had.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Rented all 4 units for 2 weeks for four couples. Excellent choice. Great location - close to Messina Gate in Taormina. We went shopping and cooked almost everyday. Fresh produce and food was amazing. For my birthday we (the owner) arranged for a chef to come to cook traditional Sicilian fare for the eight of us. The result was an amazing feast that lasted for a few days.

We all loved Sicily and we all loved this location, the accommodation and the helpfulness of the property owner. I would recommend it to anyone.

Excellent Apartment in Taormina

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 rented the entire unit for a six night stay and couldn't have been more pleased with the apartment.

The location is perfect. Is is a very short walk to one of the main gates of Taormina so you can easily reach all the sights in the town within minutes. Across the street is the cable car which takes you down to the beach and Isola Bella. Hint - you can walk down from a set of stairs at the end of the street near a lookout point. A short walk up the street there is a small store with basic supplies such as water and very reasonably priced wine. Just around the corner is a great restaurant called Sapori di Mare which was recommended by the owner of the apartment and turned out to be one of the best restaurants we ate at in Sicily. The Taormina bus terminal is a 5 minute walk down the street so if you are arriving by bus it is an easy walk to the apartment. We also caught a tour bus to the Aeolian islands from this terminal and a bus for a day trip to Catania.

The apartments are very well equipped with everything you may need for cooking your own meals and are extremely spacious and very clean. The upstairs unit has a very modern kitchen and was obviously recently renovated. A washer is available in each unit as are hair dryers.

However the highlight of the property is the very large terrace, and a few smaller terraces that are part of the upper unit. The views were incredible and we looked forward to sitting outside each night.

Communication with the owner was very straightforward and he always provided us with excellent advice about the area.

Taormina itself is a great base location to see sights in Eastern Sicily.

If we return to Sicily we will definitely stay here again.

Una terrazza da sogno

  • 5 of 5

Situato di fronte all'ingresso della funivia, a pochi passi dal centro, l'appartamento è in una posizione davvero strategica.

Dotato di tutti i comfort, le camere da letto sono spaziose e con l'aria condizionata (che non abbiamo utilizzato in quanto gli ambienti sono freschi e le finestre con le zanzariere possono restare aperte tutto il tempo), i bagni funzionali. La biancheria freschissima. La cucina ha un ampio frigorifero, ed oltre alle comuni stoviglie, c'è anche il forno a microonde ed il tostapane. L'intera palazzina è stata ristrutturata di recente e tutti gli ambienti sanno di nuovo e di pulito. Ma il vero pezzo forte è la terrazza che affaccia sul mare, attrezzata per cene all'aperto complete di panorama mozzafiato o per godere di un momento di relax nella frescura serale.

L'ospitalità, l'accoglienza e la disponibilità dei padroni di casa, ha contribuito a rendere ancora più indimenticabile questo soggiorno.

Siamo 2 coppie che hanno ...

  • 5 of 5

Siamo 2 coppie che hanno soggiornato in questa residenza la prima settimana di agosto.

I proprietari sono persone gentili discrete e disponibili per qualsiasi domanda o richiesta gli venga posta.

L'abitazione corrisponde in pieno alle foto pubblicate sul sito, quindi l'enorme terrazza vista mare che vedete è reale e ad uso esclusivo di chi ci soggiorna.

Le camere sono dotate di aria condizionata, utile visto che la sera a Taormina c'era un tasso di umidità abbastanza elevato, e rispettivamente dispongono di un bagno ciascuno.

La cucina è spaziosa, ed avrete la possibilità di mangiare sia in casa che fuori.

Tutte queste cose basterebbero per dare un giudizio positivo, ma il vero punto forza è la posizione.

Si trova a 50 / 80 metri da porta Messina, che è l'ingresso della zona pedonale e quindi il vero centro storico e vitale della città. Quindi a poca distanza trovate il teatro greco, la villa comunale, bar, ristoranti e locali per la sera.

Sempre li a porta Messina c'è mercato comunale, aperto tutte le mattine, e i bus navetta gratuiti che ogni 10 minute possono portarvi al parcheggio coperto per le auto (servizio molto efficiente fino alle 2 di notte). Nel caso non siate muniti di auto l'abitazione si trova di fronte alla funivia che porta direttamente alle spiagge di Mazzarò.

L'esperienza è stata decisamente positiva, ma non poteva essere altrimenti quando cominciavi le giornate con la vista mozzafiato sul mare che vi offre questa abitazione.

Grazie ancora ai proprietari per la loro disponibilità.
